I have hesitated to tell people about the TMS books or this program. In my case, I find telling certain people I trust and I think are both smart and intuitive, about TMS and my beliefs I have this. Fortunately, none have been dismissive and none have been skeptical. However, I generally feel best to lay low on the diagnosis and program during and after. I have not mentioned it to my spine Dr., as I feel he is not progressive enough to hear it, though I do feel he has been 100% positive about my recovery and my ability to heal and pursue the things I love. Telling or not telling is tricky business because you can sabotage yourself early on if someone is derogatory.
